LHT gains Saudi approval for business jet MRO

Saudi Arabia’s General Authority of Civil Aviation has approved Lufthansa Technik to maintain aircraft registered in the Middle Eastern country.

The approval covers a maintenance operation at Dubai’s Al Maktoum airport in a hangar that is jointly owned by German business jet operator DC Aviation and local diversified group Al Futtaim.

At the site, the MRO group services airliner-based business jets under a "long-lasting co-operation agreement” with the DC Aviation Al-Futtaim joint venture, using mechanics from its local Lufthansa Technik Middle East subsidiary.

LHT says that its has conducted two A-Checks at the facility, with the second event – on a Saudi Arabian-registered Airbus A320 – having been completed in January.

The maintenance specialist's regional sales manager, Omar Aker, states that LHT is “the second VIP MRO supplier in the Gulf region approved for Saudi-registered aircraft of the Airbus A320CJ family and Boeing BBJ types”.
